Bookmarks for your weekend.
This week we share with you an article, a video and a website. First, let’s take a look at avatars - those mental images of an ideal self that can take a heavy blow from vitiligo, a theme examined in this excellent article by Rich Cohen in the New York Times. It’s well worth a read.
Something else that’s a must-see is the recent TEDx talk by Michaela DePrince, which recounts her incredible life journey from an orphaned ‘devil’s child’ in Sierra Leone to star ballerina.
Larry (a.k.a Spotty) King has recently launched VitiligoMatch to help the vitiligo community. This social site is a place where people with vitiligo and their friends and supporters can chat, exchange photos and generally ‘feel at home’. Make sure you take a look.
